Introduction

Top UK University for Employment

We are the top university for graduate jobs in the UK 3 July 2014

Government figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency show that 97.7% of students graduating from RGU with their first degree in 2012/13 were in employment or undertaking further study.

Career Opportunities

We know that your future career will very much be part of your decision about where to study in the UK. At RGU, we believe that from the moment you hold an offer to study with us, we should help you prepare for starting (or continuing) your career.

Aberdeen, as the oil and gas capital of Europe, benefits from having many major employers who offer a constant supply of graduate jobs and placements for our students. However, it is your responsibility to make sure you are thoroughly prepared to look for graduate jobs. This should begin as soon as you join us on campus and we recommend you visit the Careers and Employability Centre as part of your orientation.

This postgraduate course has been developed to enable students to respond to demands of a rapidly changing industry. Those changes are being driven by government strategy, the demands of building information modelling (BIM) and the widespread use of architectural visualisation techniques. The course will allow you to develop a deep understanding of visualisation techniques, their implications for design, construction and collaboration, and the ways in which they will affect your discipline area and working practice in the future. The course contains hands-on experience with a range of software packages, providing a foundation upon which students can develop their ideas and project work. Building on our expertise in a range of visualisation fields, the course contains modules dealing specifically with building information modelling (BIM1 and BIM2), design visualisation, urban visualisation, virtual collaboration and information visualisation. The course culminates in a student-led dissertation or advanced visualisation project. Each module contains a practical introduction to key software and techniques, although it should be stressed that the course emphasis is on application and critical evaluation, rather than on software training. Entry requirements We welcome applicants holding an honours degree in architecture, architectural technology, surveying, engineering, planning or any associated discipline. The course will also be of interest to graduates from a design background, including interior design and product design. Applicants who comply with any of the following criteria should apply: - A good Honours degree in any discipline from a recognised university. - Applicants who do not hold an Honours degree but who have relevant industry experience over a reasonable time period will be considered. - For international students 6.5 IELTS or its equivalent in TOEFL is required. Course Fee All Students - £2400 Stage 1 - £2400 Stage 2 - £1600 Stage 3 All course fees are reviewed annually and subject to change. Published fees apply to the course's mode of delivery. [-]
